Frequently Asked Questions

How can you protect my healthcare organization and investment?

With 25+ years of clinical, operational, and compliance experience, we have the know-how to help you build, implement, and run compliance programs that use the Office of Inspector General’s guidance, as well as the latest (2020) Department of Justice recommendations.

What is Compliance Due Diligence?

We understand the specific compliance risks involved in healthcare that are often underestimated by financial and legal firms.

Typical Due Diligence doesn’t look at exposures from a compliance perspective, which could leave you feeling uncertain at the end of the process.

Our Compliance Due Diligence Process includes:

  • A coding audit using a discovery sample of governmental paid claims over the past 12 months to identify any potential coding and billing issues.  We manage the audit process, then analyze and interpret the data.
  • Using the Office of the Inspector General’s guidance of the “Seven Elements of a Compliance Program”, we gather information and evaluate the effectiveness of the target’s Compliance Program and any material compliance issues the current program is managing.
  • We conclude with an analysis of the overall risk level, the specific exposures, and recommendations for improvements.
